From the album Better Demos
Make Love Tender Again
Do you see the sadness, hidden in my eyes?
Does my sadness come as a surprise?
You know me as a happy fool, you know me from the lighthearted school
But if you look hard enough, you’ll see where I’ve been hardened by love
It’s been a long road, and I’ve travelled mostly by myself
I’ve had some true loves, they mostly hurt more than they helped
But I was born with a happy heart, made for love until death do part
But it’s been handled hard and tough and it’s been hardened by love
Can you make me soft, gentle and wild?
Make hopeful and trustful, like I was as a child
Can you give me back forever, likeI had back when
Can you make love tender again?
